Salsa A Musical History

by Various Artists
Salsa A Musical History by Various Artists
Released: Jun 2014
Label: Fania
Over 40 choice cuts from essential albums by artists who created the urban Latino fusion that became known as salsa are on this mind-blowing compilation from Fania, the New York label that started it all. The label, which celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2014, takes listeners on a funky Afro-Cuban trip, from the days of Tito Puente's big band to the rise of bugalu and Latin jazz to the Fania All-Stars' legendary nights at the Cheetah Lounge in the 1970s, where they made some of the most enduring music of all time. A must have for hardcore fans and salsa beginners alike.
